Civil Rights Defender of the Year Award 2015 goes to Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh

Civil Rights Defenders is delighted to announce the 2015 Civil Rights Defender of the Year. Ms. Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh this year’s recipient is Coordinator for the Vietnamese Bloggers Network and well known for her use of social media to speak out against injustices and human rights abuses in Vietnam.

Quỳnh has been blogging under the pseudonym of Me Nam (Mother Mushroom) and has openly criticised the Vietnamese government over human rights abuses and corruption. She began blogging in early 2006 when she paid a visit to a hospital and witnessed many poor people in the hot sun desperately waiting for treatment, but ignored because they lacked money to bribe hospital officials.

Quoted on her award diploma Civil Rights Defenders sums up the wonderful spirit of this worthy recipient. “At great personal risk, Me Nam has been right at the forefront of human rights activism in Vietnam. With creativity and openness, she is a source of inspiration as she breaks new ground for freedom of expression and speaks out for those who can’t.”

Her personal motivation for blogging about injustices in Vietnam comes down to a very simple and personal reason, which she sums up in her own words; “I do not want my children to struggle and do what I’m doing now.”

Stop Torture and Violence in Vietnam

I am Huynh Thuc Vy, a dissident blogger, a human rights defender in Vietnam. While I am sharing these words with you, torture and violence against civilians, especially dissidents still continue and get more serious.

The universal principles: Freedom, Democracy and Human rights are “luxurious things to our people. Farmers are displaced from their land. Workers are exploited in factories. Protesters are brutally beaten due to their gathering to express peaceful patriotism.

We really want to enjoy Democracy. We really want to get Freedom. We really want to have Human Rights. These values are protected and promoted in your countries, but in our country, we have to pay a high price for them.

We might be imprisoned because of exercising the rights to freedom of religion, expression, peaceful assembly, and association.

How will the future of our country be with violence encouraged by the authorities? How will our children grow up when they usually see their parents beaten. We fail to enjoy peaceful lives and fail to contribute to building our country because law enforcement agencies do not hesitate to brazenly violate human rights.

We want to tell the world that we just really want to exercise our fundamental rights.

What would you to help us? Share this video and take actions to tell the Vietnamese authorities to:

Return land to poor petitioners!
Return the right to freedom of trade union to labors.
Return the right to freedom of expression to our people!
Return pagodas and churches to congregations!
Free all prisoners of conscience!

With this video, I may ask you to help us:
Stop violence! Stop torture in Vietnam!
